There are quite alot of things to do within Ueno Park, including several museums and shrines (Museum Of Nature and Science highly recommended). The park itself is pretty large and it ideal for an afternoon stroll away from the city. Very easy to get to by train as it is directly across from Ueno Station, about 1 minute walk. Starbucks...

Museums, galleries, a zoo - lots to see in the park, but in March and April the cherry blossoms are the main draw. Our hotel room overlooks the park and we watch the trees come to life every spring. First there are bare branches on the rows of trees along the paths surrounding the pond. Slowly buds open, first just... More

had a good time, beautiful gardens and a nice walk, but I am not really into the packed tourist spots so I avoided the picture spots. If you have time, go for a walk you won't regret it.

Here's a great alternative to the crowded conditions of Tokyo. Ueno Park is a family-friendly location with enough attractions to please everyone. The only time it's busy is when the cherries bloom, and then it's the most popular place in Tokyo. Otherwise, it's a large, relatively sedate oasis, that's conveniently surrounded by train stations and subway stops, so it's quite... More

I have visited this park several times and it is very nice. A lot of activities such as museums on the inside. Nice cherry blossom at entrance when season.

I visited during winter where the flowers started to sprout from the trees. The paths was completely covered my symmetrical trees, building a memorising walking experience. I, however recommend, that you visit during autumn.

We stumbled upon this park while looking for a place to enjoy a picnic lunch. You can wander around and enjoy a peaceful walk, but there was nothing spectacular to see. Perhaps when the flowers are in bloom it would be more appealing.

I like here for autumn. Because you will see the yellow leaves and it's beautiful. From here you can go shopping and eating just across the road.

This place is so huge. I spend about 2 hours there only. There were baseball practice going on, street performance which was wonderful, nice walk to the temples. Didn't have time to visit the museum. Definitely will plan to come back again to visit during the cherry blossom period!

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
